About me and my therapy practice

How I work

It can be really difficult to take that first step to start counselling but I am warm and approachable, and can offer a safe, non-judgmental space to help you unburden yourself, and express difficult and painful emotions. We will work together to explore your past experiences and current difficulties and future possibilities. I am totally passionate about my work, and believe by helping you feel heard and understood, and by helping you find a new perspective on things, together we can facilitate positive change and personal growth.

Your first session

The first session will give you the opportunity to see whether you feel at ease with me and if you want to start to explore some of the issues that have brought you to counselling. Following this initial meeting we will work out the best counselling approach to help you move forward.

Length of counselling I offer:

Short term (usually up to 6 sessions) and longer term counselling- you decide how long you want to be in therapy for, there is no long-term commitment.

My Practice

I run a private practice from Bushey and Borehamwood. Please feel free to contact me on my mobile, 07956401489 to discuss any aspects of counselling under no obligation at all. Please be assured that everything is dealt with in the strictest of confidence.
